I love the 4 patch block. Mostly I like the simplicity, but I also like how it can be used as a building block for other blocks and projects.
You can use two fabrics, placing them on the diagonal from each other or you can use 4 fabrics for a more scrappy look.
This is block number 20 (I put up the 9 patch twice and haven’t replaced it yet), so I have made a quilt from all the blocks in the project to show you.
The quilt is made from all 20 blocks and you can see how complex it looks, even though each block is pretty easy to piece.
I probably wouldn’t put a black border on the quilt again, but it does contain the variety.
If you have made blocks or a quilt, post a link in the comments section of the relevant block or on the AQ Block-a=Long Flickr group.
